Building Vital Connections in the Arctic

Building Vital Connections in the Arctic

GCI joined a number of other leading Arctic stakeholders in Seattle last week for the fifth annual Arctic Encounter Symposium. We came in part to share our experience — lessons we have learned from 40 years of building the largest communications network in the U.S. Arctic. We also came to learn from the wisdom and experience of others.

Kodiak Students Team with Scientists to Impact Arctic, the World

Junior Kiae Shin and about 120 of her peers are part of the Kodiak World Bridge project, a partnership between the Kodiak Island Borough School District and project-based education group Trillium Learning. Through the A World Bridge project, Kiae and her fellow students are teaming up with scientists at NASA, NOAA and other organizations to design and implement real-world solutions to current Arctic problems and thereby stimulate interest in STEM education.
